Visitor Tips and News About Mystery Hole
The Mystery Hole
The Mystery Hole is the greatest place in West Virginia. As a native to the state, I have full qualifications to say this. For one whole year I dreamed of the day that I would see The Mystery Hole.
On September 5, 2016, my dream came true. As we turned the corner to see the life-size gorilla perched on top of the tin can building of mystery, my friends and I screamed in excitement. The Mystery Hole is where Comic Sans meets the trip of a lifetime. Filled with pure ridiculousness, the Mystery Hole is a must-see before you die. Buy a t-shirt.[Sadie, 12/06/2016]
Glad that we stopped at the Mystery Hole. The place was full of visitors! If you get motion sickness, though, you may have a hard time in the hole![teamReames, 10/23/2014]
The Mystery Hole used to be known as "The Sacred Miracle Mystery Hole." Don't know what happened that it lost its "Sacred Miracle" status. I went back to it after it was just The Mystery Hole, and still thought it was quite the sacred miracle.[Queixa, 06/20/2011]
Just a tip not to look at [the owner] sideways. He denied my entrance because I told him I had my camera in a coat pocket and was not going to use it; I just had it from taking photos outside the building. If I were trying to hide anything, I wouldn't have told him I had it in my pocket. He went on a tirade about how signs are posted, and his wife, the ticket seller told us no cameras, etc. My husband took it to the car and he continued to chide me in front of others. I asked, "Why are you being so mean?" and then he really flipped out like the Soup Nazi from Seinfeld. He denied my entrance saying, "Your attitude will not allow you to enjoy the exhibit!"[Ann T., 10/14/2009]
Yep, those are the rules at that particular Mystery Spot. Now get out! No soup for you!
